I love this stretch. I have arthritis in my neck and it has been a lifesaver for me; reducing my headaches and numbness in my hands and arms. Highly recommend!

Thank You!

Great class, terrible "music"

I thought the stretches felt terrific! I particularly appreciated when David said, "you should be feeling this..." because that helped me find the most effective positioning. The only downside was the awful "music"! It was distracting/annoying and kind of made me want to stop the video after the first couple minutes.

Hi lady_racer.

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you aren't a big fan of the music, though! I like the meditative, wave-like feel of it, but I realize it isn't for everyone.

Take care,

David Founder

Thank you so much for this!

I had a neck injury 15 years ago and rely on a chiropractor to help me but this is helping me to go longer between visits. I am so excited to get up and do these stretches daily now.
